In a startling revelation made by ESPN, it has been claimed that Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr was threatened by Spanish television programme El Chiringuito TV to not publish the video in which he spoke out against racism.

Vinicius was subjected to racist slur by Spanish agent Pedro Bravo while appearing on El Chiringuito, as he criticised the Brazilian’s style of play and way of celebrating goals by dancing, while also making more xenophobic comments.

Following the incident, Vinicius received a huge wave of support from the entire footballing community. The Brazilian international himself took to his social media to issue a statement on the matter after Real Madrid had threatened legal action against those involved in the incident.

During this, it is now being claimed that El Chiringuito tried to intimidate Vinicius to not go public with his video as it would portray their TV programme as racist. The threats were sent to his entourage through messages and calls from the members of the programme.

Despite their attempts at intimidation, Vinicius went ahead with his statement, in which he denounced the statements made by Pedro Bravo, while also taking a stance against racism.

Things, however, did not stop at that, as the Real Madrid winger was subjected to more abuse at the Civitas Metropolitano ahead of and during the derby against Atletico on Sunday night.

Los Rojiblancos have issued a belated statement on the matter condemning those involved and confirming that those individuals will be banned from the club.

Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.

Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.

Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.

Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.

The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.

No loan deal for Guler

However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.

Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.

Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.

They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.
